Purse is a way to exchange Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards. You can buy or sell what you want, similar to eBay. You can use your Amazon gift cards to purchase something for another user, and they pay you back in Bitcoin (usually a much higher value of Bitcoin than the going market, which is good). You can also have someone buy something for you and use their Amazon gift cards and you pay them in Bitcoin for an agreed upon value of the exchange.
You get $10 for signing up using your .edu email address if you are a current student. Anyone who signs up gets 0.01 BTC (as of this post it’s worth around $5 USD).
You can save on average 18% on Amazon purchases. The website has more detailed instructions on how to get the best discounts depending on the urgency of your purchase and who picks up your request, etc.
